Help with Audio Setup

So, I want to rework ALL of this stock audio equipment in my Jeep. I need some help picking out what I would want and or need for the kind of stereo I want. Since I dont listen to alot of rap, I was thinking of avoiding a gigantic sub in the trunk, I do not want any kind of box back there AT ALL. So, I am thinking some nice Triaxials all around to compensate for that. So here are what I need suggestions for -


Reciever - (Nav Bezel + I want a 2DIN holder, for radio, 1 for storage)
Front Speakers (the 6.5"s I believe)
Rear Speakers (6x9s I think)
Amp (If needed)
Wire
Any other speaker I might have missed.


Sorry, Im new to this! Thanks for all your help in advance!

Re: Help with Audio Setup

dont quote me on this but im pretty sure your front speakers are 6x9s and the the rear speakers are 6.5s.

If i were you i would go with the kicker KS series for your door spreakers and tweeters. I have had them im my old jeep and they sound really good, good enough for me to buy them again. Just google Kicker KS series. hope this helps.

Re: Help with Audio Setup

Just make sure before you go out and buy speakers, make sure the mounting depth isnt to deep for your doors. my infinity's i just installed are 3 1/16" and they barley rub my window rails. if they would have been any deeper i would of had some $200 paper weights. and my 6x9 infinity speakers easly sound like something i could use without subs. the bass they produce out of a door is amazing. so find some good 3.5" for your dash, a pair of 6x9's for your front doors and a pair of 6.5's for the rear doors. and if you can definitely use a good amp. with this settup you sould be able to decent bass response without subs

Re: Help with Audio Setup

I am posting my build here
Butch's 2010 install

as for the speakers the ones im using are discontinued but just look around http://www.sonicelectronix.com/cat_i...-speakers.html
and find some speakers you like, then look on the features & specs and check to see if the top mount depth is 3/16" or less. as for the 3.5" they should all fit. after you find some you like, and would like a recommendation, just let me know i would be happy to help. just enjoy it, picking out all the pieces of your audio system is half the fun.

Re: Help with Audio Setup

For the in dash 3.5's I have had good luck with these:
http://www.crutchfield.com/p_136TR35...CXi.html?tp=96
They are built for aftermarket head unit type of power, running an amp I would upgrade. (crutchfield is overpriced)

In the doors you will get a million different opinions. I like Infinity kappa series they have great high range. I have used Polk's DB series as well, they have a more balanced mid range sound and are cheaper. Some people swear by the Alpine's, I have never used them but I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Also be advised many 6x9's will not fit in the front doors without modification. Be prepared to use a spacer. I have 6.5's with a 6x9 to 6.5 adapter plate in front.

Receiver- If you are buying a nav bezel, might as well consider an indash nav receiver. Again you will get a million brand reco's but I have always enjoyed Kenwood excelon line.

Finally, with everything taken apart, add some sound deadening to your doors at the very least. good luck
